Being an editor demands knowing best practices and style guides. It also demands knowing how to communicate with writers and other editors. In my editing classes, students will learn the techniques of line editing, developmental editing, and other jobs of professional editors. Anticipating the collaborative work of the editing and publishing industry, my classes emphasize hands-on practice, detailed instructor feedback, and group projects.
